We had a wonderful time. Everyone from the Captain, Cruise Director, Manager and Chef were great. The crew was the best of the three cruised we took with Viking. Sorin the Mate De was very friendly and met all our need. The wait staff in the dinning room were very happy to make our experience great.

This river cruise was our third Viking River Cruise. We have enjoyed all three river cruises, and we are always impressed with Viking's focus on customer service!

Everything about the trip was at least as good as advertised. The staff on the boat were over-the-top courteous and attentive. The food was excellent and the chef was happy to honor special requests. The overall feeling was comfortable luxury. The only criticism I have would be about the pastries. Since the tour is through France, the pastry chef could use more French techniques--the pastries were better in the shops onshore.

We enjoyed the organization of all of the tours and the extra special touches on the Normandy Beaches tours. One suggestion was that the dinning room in the evenings got very loud. Maybe the acoustics could be better to absorb some of the noise. It was a fantastic trip.

We are ready to book again. Excellent experience!

The Paris, Normandy Cruise was so much better than I expected. From being greeted at the airport through all the various excursions the staff at Viking were awesome. The accommodation was so very comfortable, the food was out of this world and being taken to the airport to fly home, where the staff made sure we were at the right boarding gate, was way beyond my expectation. I would recommend this cruise to anyone who has had no experience with river cruises. My Travel consultant was the person who convinced me to go so I applaud him and say Thank You, you are the best ever Travel Consultant. If I could rate him and this cruise it would be ten gold stars.
